Finally...A New Post

I am moving! In June I will move four blocks south.  A couple that I know are moving and want to rent their house to me for the same rent I pay for this 100 year old pioneer era house.  I will have TWICE the space I have here.  It is seriously too much space for just the two of us but I plan on using all of it.  The house has 5 bedrooms plus and office, three bedrooms, two car garage, hot tub on the deck, a fenced yard (great for the dog), and they are leaving their pool table.  

I will finally have my own bathroom and a closet that fits all of my clothes - currently there are some in storage bags under my bed and some in my son's closet. Plus, when my son has friends over they will have room and I won't always be in the way.

I am excited to be moving someplace bigger that is worth the amount I shell out in rent but I am sad to see my friend move away. 

In other news, my car is still not functioning.  I don't need a new transmission, at least I don't think so, I just need to have a seal replace because I am leaking transmission fluid which is causing the car to stay put when I want it to go.  I am not sure what I am going to do with the rolling wreck.  I am pretty sure I just want to get rid of the thing, instead of putting $700 worth of work into it.  I'll figure it out sooner or later.  It is a good thing I am able to work from home, otherwise the situation would be a lot worse.

There really is nothing else to say.  My life is a tad boring right now and what isn't boring is stressful and not fun at all.

The new house sounds AWESOME! You can host family BBQ's and it has all the ammenities to make your boy more popular with his friend. And girls. In hot tubs. Okay, that's enough scaring the Mom. Austin is a very good kid.

Maybe it will also be your skinner self in the hot tub with a GROWN boy or two? The pool table sounds awesome.

Sorry about the car. I keep waiting for my 140,000 mini-van to give up the ghost.

Moving isn't fun, but that new place sounds devine! Have a great time spreading out and settling in. My life is pretty boring (always) too. Maybe that's better than drama, however. Sorry about your car. I have no advice. I HATE putting money into a bucket of bolts, but I HATE the expense of another car too. Sigh! Hope it works out for you.

Sounds like God has opened a very cool door for you. Praying that the car works out as well.

Don't be jealous of my vacation... yes, it was awesome, but it was temporary! I'm home now, and 100% not happy about it.

Let me turn the tables... you're moving. To what sounds like an AWESOME place. I'M jealous! I'd be happy all of the time if I got to go home every night to what you're moving into.
